GGPoker has been offering its $10,300 Super MILLION$ event for a year now and to celebrate, the online poker room is providing a High Rollers Week. Kicking off two days ago, the special week will run through June 13 and feature 27 events.
Details of High Rollers Week
With the 27 events in play, poker fans will be competing for a total of $15 million in prize money guaranteed. There are several events on the schedule each day with the opener being a Bounty Hunters HR Main Event. This tournament had a buy-in of $525 and featured a $1 million prize pool.
The Super MILLION$ Anniversary also kicked off with a $10,300 buy-in and a whopping $5 million prize pool. Today, players can get in on the action by taking part in the Bounty Hunters HR special with a $200k prize pool and $525 buy-in or the High Roller, with a $300,000 pot and $5,250 buy-in.
There are several more $1 million guaranteed online poker events on the schedule with buy-ins ranging from $525 to $1,050. The schedule starts in the early evening hours each day and offers a few events each of the special week.
Event #2 a Big Winner
A few of the High Rollers Week events have finished up already. Event #2 was one that awarded a nice prize for the first place and second-place finishers. The event had a buy-in of $1,050 and a total of 952 entries were recorded. There were not enough players in the field, so the event was $48,000 short of the $1 million guarantee.
Of course, GGPoker helped reach the guarantee and players took to the virtual felt to see who the big winner would be. In the end, it was Vincent Huang and Fabio Bonatto going head-to-head. Huang would hold on to claim the title, taking home just over $141,000 for his efforts. Bonatto earned the second-place prize of $106,023.
Omaha fans were able to compete in Event #4, the Omaholic Bounty. This tournament had a $2,100 buy-in and featured a $344,000 prize pool. This was well over the $250,000 guarantee set by GGPoker. A total of 172 entries were recorded.
The final table was stiff competition, and it would end up being Ami Barer and Belamino Souza going to the heads-up round. Souza was able to maintain the chip lead and claim the first place win, taking home just over $77,000 for the win. The prize money was worth just over $24,000 and the remaining was provided via bounties won.
Barer earned the second place finished, taking home just over $24,000 as well in prize money and a little over $15,000 in bounties.
